the same vote as out near tennessee, which has much less population. what is the purpose behind this? >> look, it's all about giving the republicans a significant advantage in these battleground states that they've lost in the past two presidential cycles. your example of virginia, president obama won the state by four percentage points, won it by 150,000 votes. but by allocating the electoral votes by congressional district, mitt romney would have won nine electoral votes in virginia to barack obama's four. if you take that entire system nationally, emory university pointed o out that mitt romney would have won 272 electoral votes to barack obama's 276 electoral votes to barack obama's 262. mitt romney would have been the president of the united states. this is fundamentally changing the rules. this would be like saying, we want the nfl to change the rules, a quarterback can no longer run in the offense anymore. >> democrats have brought this up before, but in this day and age, with twitter, and with everything such in focus, do you think republicans can really push this throug

enlisted men. >> but republican senator bob corker of tennessee who is not usually one of these knee jerk votes against the white house, particularly on appointments, raised a new issue about hagel on sunday. >> i think another thing, george, that's going to come up is just his overall temperment and is he suited to run a department or a big agency or a big entity like the pentagon. i think there are numbers of staffers who are coming forth now just talking about the way he has dealt with them. >> senator john mccain, the ranking member of the armed services committee, which will conduct hagel's confirmation hearing, continue to criticize his former close ally say they'll quiz him over america's view of the world. >> the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war. that clearly is not, that's not correct. that's in fact, it's bizarre. >> at this point, would you vote against him? >> no, nor would i vote for him. this is why we have hearings. >> finally, with president obama's second inaugural just a week ago, the second biggest fights are going to be over the budget. when the contin
